Sophisticated Swing takes pride in its renditions of the best swing music of the '40s & early '50s. Music made famous by...
Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey
Stan Kenton ... and the rest of the big bands that were household names during the swing era.
We have a large collection of tunes from this era to help us recreate the magical dance floor atmospheres from this period.
Sophisticated Swing is a big band with a difference. We believe that the biggest pop hits from the '50s to the '00s can & should be played by big bands.
The Beach Boys
Blood Sweat & Tears
Earth, Wind & Fire
James Brown ... and the list goes on & on.......
